The Station Cafe, Reepham

Once trains rumbled through Reepham Station - now it echoes with the chat of ramblers, cyclists and dog walkers enjoying a stop-off on the Marriott's Way.

On the Saturday morning when we recently visited, The Station Cafe was certainly bustling.

Noting a counter laden with tempting looking cakes on the way in, we found ourselves a table. Much of the building's character and original features have been retained, giving it a nostalgic feel.We arrived just as the kitchen was switching from breakfast to lunch mode, so ordered a cappuccino and a latte while we perused the menu.

There are plenty of crowd-pleasing dishes.

Jacket potato fillings range from the classic cheese and baked beans to slow braised brisket chilli. There are also burgers and skin on dirty fries, which come topped with sweet and smokey barbecue pulled pork with stilton, cheddar and spring onions, and Cajun wedges loaded with mixed vegetable and bean chilli.

We both chose ciabattas - my friend went for roasted red pepper, mozzarella and pesto, while I chose fish fingers with gem lettuce and tartare sauce. Other options included deep fried halloumi and chilli sauce and sausage with onion chutney. They were both tasty, generously filled and were accompanied by dressed salad and slightly salted Kettle Chips.

Sadly there was no room for cake - but I've since been eyeing up their Lotus millionaire's shortbread on Facebook, so I'm on track for a return visit. There are also guest street food pop-ups on Wednesday evenings from 5-8pm - during the summer they've had visits from the likes of Khushee plant-based Indian kitchen, Bucket List, with their loaded chip buckets, and Norfolk Thai.

Their doughnut machine has been in action, whipping up sugary seaside-style treats as well.

Our review visits are unannounced and we pay for our own meals
